April 1, 1994: for the first time House Machine is on the air. A radio show created by 2 guys called Dan-E-Mc and Mrf. But who are these guys ?
In 1985, both are 15 and hip-hop orientated. They organised real hip-hop events in a city like Geneva that was very rock-music orientated..
Dan-E-Mc was a dj and a rapper. He has done any apparitions in some big swiss events with any of his hip-hop/rap tracks. He arrived until semi-finals of DMC Switzerland in 1986. His most favourite group of this period was the PE, Public Enemy!
Mrf was a very good dj that mixed and scratched in the best quality hip-hop parties in Geneva, any of them that he organised himself or with friends of him.
But a track made both guys crazy... It wasn&'t hip-hop/rap, but something new, something fresh, coming from a dj called Tony Humphries ... Indeep and Last night a dj saved my life...
This record was the first of a long serie of new tracks buyed by Dan-E-Mc and Mrf in a house way. No more hip-hop, rap in their dj boxes but house&'s coming! In the beginning of 1988, both were customers of any record shops in Geneva but they weren&'t friends. They were both buying the same stuff, their choices were evolving in the same time and in the same way, but they only say hello hello when they met themselves. In September 1988, House music exploded in Geneva in a club called Le Palais and Dan-E-Mc (who was one of the resident djs) became a little bit famous in this city. The record-cult of this period was ROYAL HOUSE "Can U Party ?". This track played in a place like Le Palais in this period was incredible!
It was strange to see that a city orientated rock-music like Geneva is, discovers the new sound called house each saturday night at Le Palais. Mirco Many (a dj from Geneva) had organised successfully a lot of big events in Montreux, Lausanne and Neuchâtel, but in Geneva nothing happened successfully before Le Palais. And Mrf ? He organised house events (himself, too... So: no more hip-hop events...) at places called Eclipse, Abarc that were after-hours of Le Palais... This was the period of Todd Terry&'s productions...
In 1992, Mister Siamak (the owner nowadays of Meyrin FM with the friend Stéphane Miranda) decided to create an alternative radio station in Geneva. He asked Dan-E-Mc to be part of it. Then he asked Mrf the same. Both agreed without knowing that the other one was involved in this radio project. Mrf was on the air with house music on Thurdays and Dan-E-Mc (with his program called DJ Department) went on Fridays with house and hip-hop. David Morales and Def Mix were on top in this period!
Both radio programs were going very well and also the radio station was very heard by all in Geneva. So, it was decided to do an event of the radio station at Le Palais.
The club was full full full ! 2000 people inside ! From 8 P.M. The entries were already full of people and at 10 P.M. The place was full ! The party stopped at 6 A.M. With Mrf and Dan-E-Mc that gave them the change on the wheels during all night ! Hey ! Yes ! This was the first time that both djs began their friendship...
After this big event, both djs remained always together and began to organise parties together. The strange thing is that both have growned up in the same place (Vernier, near Geneva center), but they never saw each other there before... They discovered to come both from the same bronx of Geneva! The first parties that they organised together were the ones at Arthur&'s (in this period this was a new club with the goal to be the hip club in Geneva), than to the direct concurrency of Arthur&'s , the Macumba, where they began to call their friends to come to play (in France in this period, it was very new to call foreign djs to come and play !). The first dj called, was Stefano Fontana. Then, on September 8, 1993 they organised the first house/underground event in Geneva with famous djs like Stefano Fontana, Ivan Iacobucci, Uovo, Massimino Lippoli, with Mrf, Dan-E-Mc and Mirco Many that was the organiser of a lot of big house events in the rest of French Switzerland.
In this period, Dan-E-Mc was studying at the University of Bergamo and organised parties with Mrf in clubs like Le Grillon (famous place for the beginning of Stephan Mandrax) and most of all for the new project of Mirco Many for creating the first club 100% house orientated and called CPM club.
First date: Claudio Coccoluto as guest ! The second big date of CPM club was with Ivan Iacobucci as guest.
At the end of his set, Iaco talked with Dan-e-Mc. He told him that he had all the contacts, he had to create something new in the house scene to grow up. This discussion remained in Dan-E-Mc&'s head for a few months, then he had the idea to do a radio show that could be distributed to radio stations. So, he asked radio stations ... And found the name of the show as House Machine, because:House was necessary because this show was the promotion of this kind of music and also because the word house is very nice...
Machine, because house music is like a train to dance...
All began at 10 P.M. on April 1, 1994 on Lady radio 105 (a station based near Milan)... For the 1st time the 100% house music radio program called House Machine sounded!!
Then, the program went on every week-end with little until big house guests like these: Ivan Iacobucci, Claudio Coccoluto and Gianni Bini (Fathers of Sound).
So, this product created by 2 big friends (Dan-E-Mc & Mrf) interested in house music, began for fun, but, with a little bit time, became a meeting point for important house people.
And, after 6 mounths, it won the Grandprix as "Lombardia's innovative radio show".
The 18st of November 1994, House Machine went to Geneva and rebegan from a professional studio called Zerodibì Geneva to a lot of Italian radios. After then, when it was in Geneva, House Machine agreed to be promoted by the famous Swiss dj agency of this period: UDM Promotions.
In Switzerland, UDM Promotions and House Machine have organised true house parties at the first real house club of Geneva (which is dead now), the famous CPM club..
In this one all the best and well-known house djs in the world have played; from Tony Humphries to Ralphi Rosario, Benji Candelario, Freddy Turner, Claudio Coccoluto, Danny "Buddha" Morales... Those ones were interviewed by HM, then their gigs where recorded and broadcasted on House Machine.
In Italy, with the program on the air on many and always more important radio stations, House Machine growned up and became into the real Italian house scene, collaborating with the best dj agency of this period (Groove connection, Subterranea project), clubs (Red Zone Perugia, Crossover Turin), dj shops (Disco Inn Modena, Disco+ Rimini) and respectable Italian house gangs (Latin superb Posse).
The story went on in Switzerland too, because the 1st of November 1995, House Machine was broadcsted on Couleur 3, the Swiss national broadcast, and it became a fixed appointment of C.3's program called; "Metissages".
During this time, in Italy, House Machine was guest in the most important Italian house parties, like 31st of October 1995 "The Bomb" at Cyborg near Rome and February 1996 "Nobody's Land" near Rimini.
The 1st of February 1996, House Machine decided to promote its product without UDM Promotions.
By the new Italian house talents Gian Piero Mendola, Steve Mantovani and Daniele Mad, Dan-E-Mc (the creator o' HM) was invited to produce a record called "House Machine tracks". This record was on "Who's di selecta?" records printed and by Dig-It Italy distributed, it was played by Italian house radios like Italia Network and was included in the house compilation "I love America". After this little success we talked a lot about creating a record label of House Machine... But it never happens ! Until now...
Coming back to the beginning of House Machine, we discover that at SIB '96 in Rimini, House Machine was invited as guest with important Italian radio-Tv shows that played house music in this period; Italia network, Match Music, One-O-One network, Crazy Dance, etc... For a party called "Black Station, Underground station" at Pascià Riccione.
Then, House Machine had its own stand in Nightwave '96 and from this date, it decided to sell an official and very "wanted" merchandise with the little house of the logo on it.
On May 1997, the House Machine's head office taked place in Italy definitely.
The 22nd of June 1997, House Machine was part of the first Italian "Streetfestival" in Rome near the Coloseum with the best djs of the world house scene.
From September 1997, House Machine has covered 80% of Italy with big Italian radio stations. So, now we can say that House Machine is a product well-known in all Italy with the radio show and with the parties done in all different places of this Country.
The Italian radio magazines and t.v. programs have understood that now House Machine is a reality and they have done "specials" about HM (Radiomania magazine and Match Music television, for exemple).
A House Machine's tour 1998 was organised successfully in true underground clubs. Here are any places we it was guests:
- 7th of March 1998: Underground City at Popoli (Pescara)
- 3rd+4th of April 1998: privé of Prince at Riccione
- 9th of April1998: By-Pass club at Geneva (Switzerland)

- 12nd of April 1998: Juice® at Florence

15th of November 1998, Marriott Hotel in Milan, House Machine received the trophy "Italia che lavora" (Italy is working); the biggest gratitude given in Italy for the companies.
April, May and June 1999; House Machine has organised an European Tour for the promotion of its logo. Thanks to this Tour House Machine has verified that its own mark was well-know and respected all over Europe, that's why it decided to give itself an intercontinental Blast!
End of June 1999; the House Machine Crew has begun to work hard for this "world-project" including in this trip its famous radio show, but also the rest of its activities (dj agency, fashion point and record label). It's not easy to do it and it's expensive but we believe in it!
22nd of August 1999 "Party in the woods", the real house party in the wood was organised in the National Park of the Maiella (Abruzzo) with all the most famous names of the house scene with the collaboration of House Machine, too.
The 1st of September 1999 is an important date for House Machine. Mrf, the guy that was the co-creator of H.M. has stopped to be dj after 5 years 1/2 of H.M. and after a 15 years old career! He wants to work only for a famous mark of Swiss watches. He has told us: "I stop doing dj, because I want to do new things in my life and not because there are problems in H.M. or because I hate a guy in the Crew. No! With H.M. I have done a lot of nice things... If you see the evolution you can understand that is something spectacular! Thank ya Dan-E-Mc to called me and involved me in this project from the beginning! ...I have travelled, I have seen a lot of people, happy house faces... Clubs, hundred and thousand radios, underground places... I let H.M. now when it's becoming something international ! This experience will remain a unique experience for me! I'm proud to have been a guy of this project, called House Machine!"
House Machine's creator, Dan-E-Mc creates a new radio show of soul, r'n'b, hip-hop & funk called Soul City. First aired: radio Pianeta (Bergamo/Italy) 17th of September 1999 at 9 P.M.
December 1, 1999 we all talk about this Millennium of House Music and we can say that House Machine has done a good way in this continuous in movement scene like the House one is... 15 years old for House Music, 5 years old for House Machine... These are 2 garantees for the next future in music!
In January 2000, the staff of HM begins the organisation of the most important and ambitious project of its young but very exciting career: House Machine® - World Tour 2000...
April 1, 2000, House Machine was at Privilege clun in Turin for its 6th birthday. Mrf is back ! June 3, 2000; 3 hours set with Dan-E-Mc @ Lotus Modern Club of Viuz-en-Sallaz in France...
The House Machine's come back on "Métissages" Couleur 3 during June 2000 has permitted a successfull Swiss return for House Machine and in particular way in the best House club in Switzerland, the D!
A lot of House Machine parties have been organised in the most important place in Switzerland from July 2000 with residencies of Dan-E-Mc and guests like Mrf, Gian Piero Mendola, Sauro Cosimetti, Joe Montana and Ivan Iacobucci... It was magnificent to see so many beautiful House people together in the same place for the House Machine's come back in Switzerland in the best club.
End of September 2000; end of the House Machine's world tour. Dan-E-Mc said: "It was exhausting, but nice!"
House Machine has been called for his help in old House situations and clubs closed to re-open and re-promote them in a House way.
That's why Gian Piero Mendola and Dan-E-Mc have played in New Years Eve in the legendary club in Sardinia called Nottambula. This club was for a long time closed or opened for short commercial situations, but now it has re-opened with the House Machine Crew in the way to do only quality House music.
Always in this way, Dan-E-Mc has been invited in January 2001 at the first party of the new Arti-show that is the place where there was the old CPM (first House club in Geneva). This place has the same story that Nottambula has; closed and opened but without success. Now it seems that the owners want to do quality House with House Machine's experience.
From February 2001 House Machine organized House parties in a club that was its own when in Geneva. We are talking about the old Gallery of Sound in the industrial zone of Geneva. The residents now are the two swiss friends Steve Price and Bart.
March 31, House Machine has done its birthday party at New Open Gate in Cagliari (Sardinia island).
April 7, House Machine re-opens the glamourous CPM club of Geneva with this name: CPM.2. During this night, the guys that played there are two of the first guests of the CPM club on... April 8 1994: Ivan Iacobucci and Dan-E-Mc.
April 29, 2001; House Reference and House Machine re-open Casinò de la Rotonde to their Neuchâtel's House people. An historical place for big House events. The party is called Pascià with all the Pascià staff; Massimiliano Beca, Vanessa J and the animation of the famous club of Riccione. Three days before this party, all pre-tickets were sold!
Summer 2001 will be House Machine orientated.
The famous HM crew will be resident at a new club called Alta Vista (Ex-Cellophane) in Rimini. The staff, composed by Steve Gandini has taken the experiences of the major Italian House situations to put them in this club; Mazoom, Le Plaisir, Red Zone, Fura, Pineta De Luxe and House Machine. House Machine (with its representative in Rimini's zone, Massimiliano Beca) will have the musical direction of the club for all Mondays and Tuesdays. That's not all, because House Machine will have other HM events in Italy (Estasi's Disco, the beach of Cagliari...) and Foreign Countries (Pacha of Palma of Maiorca...).
Technically, House Machine made its own revolution on October 2001. They decided to stop post expenses and use MP3 to send the show to all radio stations. This was immediately a success; international radio stations like Hurricane FM at Den Haag (Holland) said "yes" to broadcast the HM's show.
For HM, the end of 2001 means Private House Parties and/or fashion parades for important marks in European Villas and Luxurius Hotels with true Soulful Garage House Sound, (exemples: Villa "La Cigale" for Christmas "Mon Tresor" for New Years Eve).
In January we discover that our website has been used from UNESCO (!) to describe House movement.
In February, House Machine came back in the most Soul club of Sardinia called FBI. Intro was hip-hop and then Dan-E-Mc put his Soulful garage... Atmosphear was explosive at FBI on February 8, 2002!!!
On March, Discoid Magazine gave space to Dan-E-Mc. He spoke about MAESTRO Original Movie Soundtrack.
From the end of March until beginning of April, House Machine toured Europe for its 8 years old birthday. During this tour HM stopped at By-Pass (the club of a old friend of HM Mirco Many) and also in a 5 star hotel near Bologna.
In the middle of April, Dan-E-Mc has done 2 parties for his 31 years old as a man and 19 years old as a dj in these clubs: Basement and Soulfood Café.
During this time and for the date of May 2, 2002, Platinum club in Geneva asked House Machine for organising the biggest party in this city for the last 6 months... A party with Roger Sanchez !!! Opening party with Dan-E-Mc, entry CHFRS50.- for a Thursday and pre-paid tickets sold out one week before the party !!!
But big events with great House names don't finish!!! House Machine organised Friday nights (with beginning in May 2002) at Il Laghetto an open air club near Milan... A project of Riccardo Busnari + friends. Previous guests and residents are: Ivan Iacobucci, Dan-E-Mc, Pamela, Mr Mike, Jamie Lewis, Pino Arduini et Dj Pierre, and projection of the movie MAESTRO!
And, on the foreign front, House Machine is included in the Swiss National event called Expo.02. HM party is at Arteplage Yverdon with these guests: Michael Watford (the voice !), Andy Funk (The Soul sax!), Vanessa J (Riccione's best female vocalist!) and the dj will be Dan-E-Mc (the creator of HM)... A party absolutely Ssssoul !!!!!!
July 1, 2002 The FM radio show stops, to become a new Internet radio station in the near future.
August 2002, Dan-E-Mc was in tour with House Machine in Belgium, Holland and Germany.
October 2002; Due to the new direction at D! club in Lausanne, House Machine did its last party at D! on October 11, 2002. And... House Machine came back at the most important Italian house club, called Red Zone on October 31, 2002 (in a Halloween party) with Joe Claussell, Ivan Iacobucci (the padrino) and Dan-E-Mc as guests + the residents Sauro and Ricky L.

From March 2004, Dan-E-Mc creator and still owner of House Machine is touring for the birthday of the leggendary trademark of the little house.
This tour stopped in historical clubs like Red Zone Perugia, Les Caves in Geneva and in Countries like Canada, France, Germany, Spain and Poland and will go on until all 2004. We must remember also the StreetFestival on the way from Rimini to Riccione following the beach, that was organised by the Italian political group called Italia dei Valori of Antonio Di Pietro.
From April 17 until July 2004, House Machine was Art and Musical Director of Tipitinas in Lovere (Bergamo) directly in front of Lake Iseo. Its goal was to re-gold the image of this magnificient club. And Dan-E-Mc was the resident dj.
Between July and August 2004, House Machine was touring different clubs, villas, beaches and situations organised in Sardinia by all its frendly people from this wonderful island...
The House Machine tour 2004 went on until May 1, 2005 (when we were partying from one month also the 11st year of HM...) in Daniel P&'s villa near the Lake of Como.
Since June.05, Dan-E-Mc is working for his first album. Not a simple dj mix, but a real long playing one ! ... As requested by Mister Manlio Cangelli owner of MC Harmony...
House Machine has the Musical Direction of Gasoline (a new club near Bergamo) during Autumn 2005. Massimiliano Beca and Nick Bridges (Ministry of Sound resident dj) play with Dan-E-Mc (the resident with his friend Ricky Deep) and all is broadcasted live on Viva FM.

March 2006, the first comments about the album from the house music scene are excellent (take a look to "The Discography").
The official party to promote that the album is on sale in shops has been done in Sardinia, at Charlie club in Cagliari on April 14, the birth date of Dan-E-Mc...
After all positive comments from the house scene about "Many moods of a dj" and after a South European tour, from September 2006, Dan-E-Mc is working for the new album.
November 2006: at the moment we know that the album will not be a double one (like the first), but it will be a long timing one and it will also contain a ...Slow ! Then, there will be 2 tracks that will go out from this new album with remixes on maxi-single formats, with the collaboration of important French people (some are old good friends of House Machine...).
Since February 2007, the new album of Dan-E-Mc is musically completely finished. What we can say is that the sound has been cured a lot and that the opus covers totally a cd (74 minutes of music !). At the moment we don't know when it will go out.
In March 2007, the new friend of House Machine called Didier Vanelli www.didiervanelli.com is doing the remixes of the single tracks of the new album of Dan-E-Mc and he is interested in licensing on his new French record label, the album "Many moods of a dj", doing for it also the remixes of the vocal tracks.
An other important news: the famous Baileys has taken the music of "Funky Chill" from "Many moods of a dj" of Dan-E-Mc for its Italian radio national advertising campaign, broadcasted on the major FM Stations. For listening to the spot, go to: "This is also House Machine".
It is official ! The album DAN-E-MC.attitude will be out on June 2007. There's a big movement around which label will sign it first and at the moment (April 2007) we don't know which one will print it. We only know that any single house/soulful tracks will be printed on the new French label of Didier Vanelli called Deepfull records.
July 2007: DAN-E-MC.attitude is out now, physically distributed worldwide by Self (Milan). The digital distribution has been given to the worlwide platforms of shaftmusic.fr.

In the beginning of December, Dan-E-Mc began a tour to promote the new cd. First gig at Coconut Winter in Rimini, with cameras of a tv show called Lucignolo (broadcasted on national Italia1). This tournée went on until end of February 2009.

An Italian summer tour is organised in clubs but also in radio & tv lounges to promote this book. But this "dj arts teacher" (like any collegues call him from now) has also other things ready... During this month, two tracks taken from the forthcoming album "Rara Eleganza", out on September 2009 on the famous Italian Dance record label called Molto Recordings with collaborations with Shaft Music, Didier Vanelli, Lady B & Alan Drake.

A comment about this new clip coming? It was from when I put my first vinyl on a turntable that I always dreamed about doing a song like this SATURDAY one (in a modern house key), that represented so much the real SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER atmosphere, and it was from the day I played my first vinyls in front of a dancefloor that my desire was to do a clip like this one, with all the best classic disco-funky atmospheres, based on style and elegance... I think that we did a high level job. We did our best! Soon, you will judge by yourself...
During the "Saturday" DJ Contest, this song has had 50'000 views on YouTube, was broadcasted "heavy-rotation" on Match Music Television ("Match Music Selection") the Italian dance TV, on Odeon TV (Italian national TV) and on 100 local and regional TVs in Italy and 300 local and regional radio stations in Italy.

March 4, 2014 - 15P.M. ... DAN-E-MC: "GOD MADE ME FUNKY" (OFFICIAL VIDEO-CLIP)!!!
APRIL 1994 - APRIL 2014 : 20 YEARS OLD 4 HOUSE MACHINE
"It's a train's story. The story begins 20 years ago as a "Local" train because of no money. But this train was very ambitious. After a little running in on destroyed platforms by imbecile guys, slowly but surely, this train has had credibility thanks to its precision, punctuality, reliability and style, and it began quickly "Regional", then "Intercity" and nowadays it runs like a real "TGV" for international destinations... During all these years, a lot of people boarded on it. All the people could board on it. Then there were the ones that do not pay the ticket, other ones that disturbed all passengers and someone that does not like the guidance of the driver (that is the same from the its first start) and all of these were put down the train at the next station (with good or bad proceedings, depending on what they did!). From its beginning, there were people that tried also to wreck it, but the solid men of law of this train, so concrete and competent, have always resolved all problems with these people, also with the ones with unexpectedly amnesia attitudes. In this period, for these ones and others, it has no sense to wait for this train in the little stations. It doesn't stop again! This train doesn't stop on these platforms, but he runs on these other ones, where is the highway! This train runs runs runs and stops only at important stations. Sometimes putting out of it an other one that disturb the good trip of all passengers. Sometimes, boarding a guy that were put off one day, but all controllers have a very good memory. This train is running to the future. Full speed! All the best cities and important destinations are interested in it... And if you want to know where you can find this 20 years old train now, it is still ready for a new start, platform number1!", DAN-E-MC www.housemachine.com
